Your (Daily) Power Tool to Reclaim Your Goddess Nature

Picture5Reconnecting to our Goddess Nature is a must so we have the energy and power to create what we truly desire as women.

Many women ask me HOW to connect to their Divine Feminine Essence and to keep their mind clear, heart open and energy high on a day-to-day basis.

It’s of course of little wonder that we feel disconnected from our bodies, our Divine Feminine and our Essence in a world that is focused on the external world of achieving, accomplishments and doing.

Yet, a Goddess knows that in order to create with ease she must be in her center.

When we are stressed, angry or frustrated we are not only NOT in our center, but hopelessness, overwhelm and depletion can falsely lead us to believe we have no options and no power!

Calming the mind and the nervous system is a must for every woman if she wishes to access her innate power of easeful manifestation and Goddess-like creation.

That’s why I have created a recording to help you dear woman, to get back in your body and reclaim your power.

My Husband Is Freaking Out About Money ~ How to Manage His Money Mojo So It Doesn’t Affect Yours

Girl kisses boy on the cheek on the background of money.“Is my husband’s money fears or freak outs about money causing me to make less or affecting my money?”

I receive this question almost weekly from my clients.

So my answer to the question is: “Only if you let it.”

Stay with me…

Yup, his money story will affect you only if you allow it to affect you.

If you are triggered, charged, annoyed or angry for his money mojo then it's affecting you.

You are SO powerful that you create your reality even when you share that reality with another. So what reality do you truly DESIRE?

SOOOOOO….If you are super clear and intentional about money and you have a vibration of ease, abundance and flow, well that my friend, is the HIGHEST energy and it literally over-rides fear, doubt and freak outs even from the man you share a bed with.

The thing is it is easier said than done when money is so super charged in our society.

As I wrote in For Better or Worse, Hopefully Better, “Our relationship to men and money requires real mastery. It also requires that we heal our own money gremlins as money issues are one of the top reasons couples divorce and usually the number one thing couples argue over.” Read the full article. 

Being in partnership means we take a lot of cues from each other so it can feel challenging when your lover is not at the same money “story” as you, or he triggers your own.

It can also be super annoying to have to babysit his gremlins too.

Or it can feel like he is just darn right unsupportive when you want to take your career, income or investments to the next level and he fears the sky is falling.

So, here's how to remain steadfast even with the money meltdowns from hubby:

lakshmi-puja1. Know Your Power

Here’s the thing that is absolutely true for you – YOU create your reality, and only YOU. No one can affect your attraction point, your thoughts and feeling and your manifestations unless you allow them to.

If your husband’s issues around money don’t resonate with you that is they aren’t getting in then it won’t affect you. It will just be white noise that you barely hear. It’s that simple.

If, however, you allow his money fears to activate your own fears or insecurities then they will affect your reality. And they could be a great mirror for your own healing and empowerment.

I hear you saying, “But Shasta, I am married to him. We share resources. If he has money concerns then I have to have money concerns. I am also really close to this person so of course I am affected by him.”

And again, I say that your choice to hear, believe, accept and feel his money stories is a CHOICE and that only you have the power to influence YOU.

One hundred dollar bills in the shape of a heart isolated on white background, The love of money

 2. Get Clear

His money stories could be calling you to become even more CLEAR on what you do want, even more POWERFUL in learning and practicing the Laws of the Universe and even more ROOTED in what you know to be true.

For example recently one of my clients and her husband were considering purchasing a vacation property which meant a second mortgage. For her, she saw it as a fun way to circulate money and be in the flow as well as call in some additional abundance to make this happen with ease. It felt exciting and like a fun chance to practice manifestation for her.

For her husband, it felt a little scary and his money stuff was triggered. She chose to remain on the “magic carpet”.

magic.carpet3. Remain On the “Magic Carpet”, No Matter What

With this same client, her husband actually became annoyed that she was not triggered so he amped up the story for a while. I coached her to allow him to have his experience and approach it with curiosity and compassion BUT remain firmly grounded in her knowing that this was going to work out.

No matter how he tried to get her to “face reality”, she stayed firmly rooted in her vision for what could be and what was really already here (and coming) in terms of their abundance. She refused to allow the gremlins to get her, but she did not become annoyed by his fear either.

She knew this purchase was NOT a financial strain, but rather just new for him which meant it was uncomfortable for her husband who liked things to stay the same. She just observed this with love.

She did a fantastic job of being a model of compassion, clear vision and easeful abundance for him.

They purchased the property with ease and are enjoying life even more fully together.

The Laws of Creation require us to stay open to the possibility, to BE abundance and of course to be discerning but we have to ALLOW the wellbeing and prosperity of the universe to flow to us, and we can’t receive abundance when we are in fear or worry.

When we KNOW what we know, no one can sway us from this place.

We can allow our partner his money stuff and approach it with understanding and compassion.

If we remain rooted in our own attraction power, magical creations manifest for our self and our lover.

We will also help him heal simply by how we BE, and that is some real goddess power at work in the world.

To paraphrase Abraham Hicks, “One person connected to the stream of possibility, abundance and joy is far more powerful than millions who are not.”

You are an ocean of abundance, dear goddess!

Your Relationship Renaissance – Work Privately with Me this Summer

Beautiful Goddess,

I wish to share an extraordinary offering that I would be remiss if I didn’t share with you.

IMG_7529If you have been in my world for a while then you know that I am a deeply spiritual person. (This photo is of me in Whistler, BC with the famous Yoga photographer Robert Sturman.)

You may also know that I am deeply honored to be a part of so many women’s (and men’s) personal expansion and empowerment journey as a teacher, an author and a relationship coach.

For almost two decades I have had the pleasure of helping women and men connect to their Divine self, loving heart and fearless power, and truly transform themselves and their lives.

But, I have watched an interesting effect occur in my students and myself…as we become more conscious, when we walk a spiritual or mystical path, we begin to yearn for (demand) that same transformation, passion and connection in all areas of our lives.

As spiritual women, we no longer are willing to settle in any areas area of our lives, including in our intimate relationship. This can actually cause some tension and frustration and bring up some deep questions….

Many Spiritual Women Ask Me: 

  • How can I bring my Goddess Nature/spiritual self to my relationship? I’m not holding back anymore!
  • Does he even get me? Is he even the one? Is there a “more” spiritual guy out there?
  • How can I open my heart to my man in a way that invites him to open up to himself and our relationship even more deeply?
  • How can I create the next level of powerful partnership with my lover?

I was asking myself these questions just a few years ago.

My husband and I felt like we were the North and South poles – literally living different lives and worlds apart!

But we changed all that! We now have a deeply connected friendship, a passionate intimate life and a powerful partnership.

What is amazing is that we used the same tools of Yoga, spirituality and metaphysics that I so loved, to heal our rift and create a truly soulful relationship!

I listened to the call of the Goddess to truly embody Her nature of love, power and compassion and found my husband responded in a BIG, beautiful way.

My own experience of near-divorce to delicious prompted me to really give a voice and actively participate in leading a new paradigm in the area of sacred relationship.

I created a truly transformative program called The Rich and Satisfying Relationship Blueprint and it has been an honor and a joy to witness conscious women create the sacred relationship and soul fulfilling partnership they longed for, but never thought possible!

I would NOT being serving my community if I did not let you know that this program is now available to those who are ready to create a truly soulful relationship or even improve a pretty good one.
